“Great Aussie Service”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home. Malcolm provided stellar service and even helped us arrange water sports to SUP and kayak. He also made some phone calls to some of his associates to help us plan our free day. Any time we called or texted, he replied immediately. I cannot wait to go back. We are American and I agree with the other review that Malcolm was interested in learning about where we were from and educating us on the local area. His laid back style and wicked sense of humor still have us smiling every time we talk about him. The two bedroom apartment is quite spacious and very clean.

On the whole coast north of Cairns Yorkeys Knob is definitely the quietest and most romantic place of all beach places; and The Beach Place is the best in Yorkeys. Malcolm is not only a fantastic host but extremely knowledgeable man interested in other people's stories. Together with Anna they provide a special kind of hospitality that goes well beyond ordinary one. The view from the balcony is extraordinary and the long sandy beach a perfect place for walking and daydreaming. Enjoy evening drink observing stars and listening to eerie wailing calls of bush stone-curlews. Plan your trips from The Beach Place but return to its nest for reflection and peace!

A family of four with 2 adult children, we stayed at the Beach Place for 6 nights after spending 5 nights in the Daintree. The Beach Place was on a quiet street about 10 minutes drive from the centre of Cairns. We had a hire car and could get about easily. Anna and Malcolm were more than willing to assist with any queries and had loads of great suggestions. We would happily stay here again although it would be the icing on the cake if the cafe downstairs was up to scratch. The yacht club had good food and was easily walkable. The Beach Place made a great base for our Cairns holiday.

Home from home, fabulous hosts, great location, could'nt have wished for anything better.
If your looking along this coast - this is it! Nice location for getting about did Skyrail and railway, Daintree river trip and up to Port Douglas for wedding and out to Low Isles reef.
If we get to Australia again we shall book here.

Malcolm and Anna were absolutely the kind of people you wish to have to guide you in Cairns and around. The apartment is really comfortable with everything you might need and you feel immediately at home. The beach is quiet and surprisingly not crowed at all (August), gorgeous place for a sun bath ! It was the perfect place we were looking for to rest our first week of holidays in Queensland.

Within 1-hour of arriving at the resort Malcolm was hands on saving the life of my nephew!!! The sea views from the apartments are STUNNING & the mile long beach is only 20-yards away & virtually empty during our stay in peak holiday season!! The BBQ that Malcolm, Anna & Tahlia hosted on the beach was MAGNIFICENT & their hospitality is UNRIVALLED. Their local knowledge & connections makes putting a completely custom itinerary together very quick, easy & cost effective. This is the place to stay in Cairns!!

Room Tip: Make sure you stay at the Beach Place - best location all round.

We LOVED our stay at the Beach Place! Right across the street from the beautiful Yorkeys Knob beach. The apartments are perfect! We had a two bedroom, two bath. The large, comfortable balcony looks over the ocean. The side windows look at a park with palm trees. The kookaburras came to our balcony rail every day. Beds are so comfortable, everything is very, very clean. We were on the second floor, no elevator. Not a problem for our family - parents and 2 college kids.
The large kitchen has everything we needed.
The beach is lovely anytime of day, we spent a lot of time walking, watching the dolphins, collecting sand dollars. There is a lot to do in the Cairns area. The hosts, Malcolm and Anna are so friendly and very helpful and their daughter is an excellent hostess also! They gave us great suggestions for our stay, lent us maps etc.We did a snorkeling trip on the great barrier reef, spent the day in Kuranda (loved it!), drove up to Port Douglas - beautiful! We felt so at home here and can't wait to go back. We want to try paddle boarding with Malcolm when we come back - he would lend us a board but we didn't have time.
